This module introduces you to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme, implemented across England from 2008. The programme sought to address a significant problem in the provision of psychological therapies in England but is a challenge experienced in many parts of the world. That is, limited access to ‘evidence-based psychological therapies’ for the treatment of ‘high-prevalence’ or ‘common’ mental health problems, often resulting in very long waiting times and difficulties concerning the acceptability of treatments being offered, or in meeting the needs of people with some feature of diversity.
The module is also designed to provide you with knowledge concerning the presentation of common mental health difficulties and equip you with a theoretical understanding of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Further, the module provides you with a critical appreciation as to how the organisation of mental health service delivery, development of a new mental health workforce and implementation of low-intensity CBT is being used to address problems regarding the availability of evidence-based psychological therapies and excessive waiting times....
